Our Promise: 16 February 2014

But let your “Yes” be “Yes”, and your “No”, “No”. — Matthew 5: 37

Message

Our yes to the triune God incorporates both word and deed. This call of Jesus is related to our faith and our attitude toward Him—it is a call for a clear and unequivocal profession: yes to Christ and no to Satan.

Core Points

God’s yes to us is firm and evident in:

  • Jesus Christ,
  • His promises, and in
  • The gift of the Holy Spirit which we have received.

Our yes to God is a profession to Him. The yes that we have given once should also be followed by our second yes, namely the “yes of perseverance”.
